Box truck (Büssing 4500) "Union Transport".
Union-Transport – the colours of this haulage company were widely known as early as the 1950s. They identified a company that provided reliable goods distribution by both long-distance transport and to customers nearby. WIKING has used the opportunity offered by new moulds to miniaturise the contemporary and attractive prototype of the historic Büssing 4500 box truck into a 1:87 model. Boasting a payload of 4.5 tonnes and a total weight of 8.7 tonnes, the type 4500 was intended to round out the distribution transport fleet offered by the Braunschweig lorry builders.
